Melon for One?

One reader spotted this “personal melon” for sale in a grocery store in Chicago.

A seedless personal melon

After our previous discussion on the meaning of the term “personal items”, we have to wonder, what exactly did the grocer think the personal use of this melon would be?

Thanks to a Chicago reader for contributing the photo for this post.

    The deep trolley is a thoughtful, well-intentioned shopping cart that really cares about its customers and its role in life. I would have thought that the personal melon is of the same essence – the fruit that cares, if you will.
